The lion in love

and asked them tomarry her to him.
The old parents did not know what to say. They did not like the idea of
giving their daughter to the lion, but they did not want to enrage the king of
At last the father said, "We are glad to marry our daughter to you, but we
fear that you might possibly hurt her. So if you remove your claws and teeth, we
will give her to you."
The lion loved the girl very much, so he trimmed his claws and took out his
big teeth. When he came to the parents again, they simply laughed in his face,
and beat him out of their house.
